The CJN wants your stories or photos about the first time you felt a connection with Israel

As Israel celebrates its 75th anniversary, we’re feeling a little nostalgic about the first time we visited Israel, or even the first time we heard about Israel. 

The Canadian Jewish News would like to hear about your first trip to Israel. Maybe it was a bar mitzvah trip or volunteering on a kibbutz or an adult mission with federation. 

Perhaps you remember listening to the radio when the UN approved the partition plan, or the celebrations surrounding 1948.

Send us a short note and share your memory—and we’ll get in touch if we’re interested in more details.

We plan to publish a selection of stories and photos in our summer magazine.
